Together with Irish in Britain, we developed a Healthy Eating for Healthy Memories Recipe Book as part of our allotment project celebration at the Brent Library. Working together in partnership, we developed and delivered a Healthy Eating for Healthy Memories project with residents of Clochar Court Sheltered Housing Scheme and the wider Innisfree Community in North London.
The project took place over 8 weeks and participants met each Wednesday to explore a range of foods and cooking techniques that encouraged a healthier approach to diet and lifestyle with an emphasis on food and nutrition that supports good brain health as we age.
Throughout the project participants cooked a range of meals together, met with a nutritionist, found out about getting active in their local community, celebrated Dementia Awareness Week and took a picnic to the Innisfree allotment. Together the group tried everything from wheatgrass smoothies to quinoa, with a scoop or two of Italian ice–cream thrown in along the way!
Following our taste tests and explorations, we’ve developed 7 recipes that are nutritious, easy to follow, quick to make and have a ‘superfood’ or two that you might not have tried before! So give our simple recipes a go and begin your day with our Great Start Smoothie recipes or catch up with a friend over a delicious Oat and Nut Teacake!
